I eat out A LOT. And sometimes the low carb restaurant choices are just plain limited.
Today I had lunch with my good friend @GinaParris at the O’Charleys in Manchester, TN – which is one of our favorite spots to get together and brainstorm our online business strategies.
When I first started eating low carb, I had to consult the Nutrition Facts for any restaurant I was visiting.
But now I have it figured out well enough to order easily.
Still, I love having my smart phone on hand to Google things or download the Nutrition Fact sheets on the go.
Given how much I eat out – particularly when traveling – I get bored with the usual low carb restaurant choices.
Namely steamed broccoli and caesar salad. Blah. Great foods mind you, unless you eat them every day for awhile. LOL…
A New Twist on Boring Old Broccoli
Something I’d never thought of before, which was suggested by my brilliant mom, is to order your broccoli “loaded” – like you would a baked potato. (see photo above)
OMG. It was totally smothered in butter, sour cream, bacon and cheese… and it was HEAVEN!
If you haven’t tried this as one of *your* low carb restaurant choices, I highly recommend it.
Your choice of sides when eating out is usually: carb, carb, carb, super carb, carb, broccoli.
Next time you order the broccoli on the side, get it loaded. 😀
